We offer: 

  Direct Access to Tier 1 Liquidity The Fortex platform offers direct access to Tier 1 liquidity from all major money center banks. Gain instant, low-cost Straight-Through Processing (STP) of your orders at razor-thin spreads, as well as powerful trading features unmatched by any other FX platform on the market. Get real-time executable streaming quotes from more than 50 liquidity providers for over 80 global currency pairs. Fortex liquidity providers include money center banks such as Bank of America, Barclays, BNP, Citi, Commerzbank, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Macquarie, Morgan Stanley, Nomura, RBS, and UBS; exchanges such as CME Group; and ECNs such as Currenex, EBS, FXall, and Hotspot FX. Fortex also receives liquidity from numerous hedge funds and broker-dealers.  Powerful Trading Infrastructure Hosted in a dedicated facility at Equinix NY4, the Fortex platform runs on a fully redundant, carrier-class IT infrastructure for always-on availability. Hot-swap features on critical network servers and network infrastructure mean that Fortex is never taken out of service. Full redundancy combined with hot backup in Silicon Valley and a network footprint in Asia make data instantly recoverable if necessary. You get continuous, reliable performance for maximum trading performance. Fortex enables high-velocity trading with lightning-fast speed. Liquidity providers cross-connect to the Fortex XCloud server grid through dedicated dark fiber. By eliminating Internet transport, Fortex reduces round-trip trade time to sub-1ms with 480-Gbps throughput. We easily process thousands of orders concurrently and more than half a million orders per day.  XBook ECN The powerful Fortex XBook matching engine works as an ECN, representing each trader’s order in the interbank market to match with the best liquidity available. Fortex has access to several superior liquidity sources that are not available to the public market. Our unique algorithm can find this hidden liquidity, enabling traders to improve pricing on large orders. Artificial intelligence provides Straight-Through Processing (STP) of orders without human intervention for instant, low-cost execution. Fortex STP optimizes trading decisions across all markets by locating maximum liquidity, discovering price improvement, and minimizing market impact.  Risk Management Easily identify and manage potential risk factors with our industry-leading robust, real-time risk monitoring and management tools. Accurately assess real-time market exposure by firm, trading domain, individual, asset class, currency pairs, or other criteria. Extensive built-in risk alerts and triggers let authorized users control risk thresholds and set systematic measures. Margin calls and margin liquidations are performed automatically. Fortex solutions also help to strictly enforce compliance risk management. You can further customize features to meet specific business practice requirements. Back Office Support 
The Fortex BackOffice web portal simplifies trade processing, settlement, account statements, reporting, regulatory filing, and system administration tasks—bridging the gap between clearing and electronic trading.
